Spring 1 Week 3 - Sense of sight

This week nursery have been looking at the sense of 'sight'. We have understood that we use our eyes to see and took part in activities which are to do with our eyes such as using magnifying glasses to look at objects in detail, looking through cellophane and turning the lights off to describe what we can see in the dark.

As part of the Very Hungry Caterpillar topic, nursery children have practiced writing their name whilst making a caterpillar picture.

 

Next week we will be learning about the sense 'taste' and look forward to world food day on 31st January 2010.

Spring 1 Week 2 - Senses

This week in nursery we have been focusing on our senses. We have engaged and taken part in a wide range of activities around the sense "touch". We have used our hands and feet to explore different materials such as sand paper, paint, acorns, foil and feathers to learn if they are ‘smooth’, ‘rough’ ‘bumpy’ or soft. During maths we have been focusing on the number 2, participating in a range of activities to help us understand, recognise and write the number two. We have also settled our new peers into our nursery and continued to make new and positive relationships.

This week Nursery have been looking at the topic 'All about me'. This includes making new relationships with peers and engaging in activities about themselves such as their families and friends. The activities included drawing who lives in their house, making playdough faces and using the character props in the reading corner to act out the story 'All about me'. This week Nursery have also learnt new phonic sounds such as 't', 'm' and 's' and focused on the number '1' in maths.

Autumn 2 Blog Week 7

During this Autumn half term, Acorns and Nursery have been learning about ‘Seasons’. Within this they have explored topics such as ‘Autumn’, ‘Day and Night’ animals and ‘Christmas’.

As part of the topic about Autumn and Day and Night animals, the children have enjoyed participating in exploring autumn colours, going on an autumn walk in the yard and making autumn pictures with leaves. We have read stories linked to the topic such as ‘Going on a bear hunt’ and ‘Owl babies’ and enjoyed joining in activities linked to the story. In literacy sessions we have practised sequencing the stories using ‘first, next and last’, looked at how to correctly hold and turn pages in books and wrote letters to the mother owl. During Maths sessions, we have learnt to recite and recognise numbers to 5, to match quantity to number and focused on activities based on the four basic shapes ‘square’, ‘rectangle’, ‘triangle’ and ‘circle’. We also enjoyed having a visit from the Owls and had the wonderful opportunity to hold and take a picture with the baby Owl.

During the topic of Christmas, we have enjoyed Christmas crafts which have included decorating and writing cards for family and friends, making snow penguin pictures and snowflakes on the creative table and dressing up like elves, wrapping presents for Santa. We look forward to our visit from Santa next week.  From all of the children in Acorns and Nursery we wish you a very merry christmas and a happy new year!

Top Tips For Teeth

Dental decay in children can lead to pain, infections and difficulty with eating, sleeping and socialising. It is the most common reason children aged 5-9 are admitted to hospital.  Here are some ways to keep your child’s teeth healthy

  •  Children need help brushing their teeth until they are at least 7 years old to make sure they are brushing properly.  Helping them will introduce them to good dental habits that will last a lifetime
  • Brush teeth twice a day, once before bed and once at any other time that suits your routine.
  • Use fluoride toothpaste. Toothpaste that contains 1350-1500ppm fluoride gives teeth the best protection
  • Spit don’t rinse. Brushing teeth with toothpaste provides a protective layer of fluoride. If you rinse your mouth with water after brushing you wash it away. Spitting after brushing is fine.
  • Be Sugar Smart . Many children and adults are eating too much sugar. Visit the change 4 life website for suggestions on how to reduce sugar . www.nhs/change4life
  • Swap sugary drinks. Try sugar free, diet or no added sugar drinks BUT plain water or lower fat milks are best.
  • Register with a dentist. To find an NHS dentist visit www.nhs.uk/service- search
  • Visit your dentist as often as your dentist recommends. Talk to your dentist about fluoride varnish for your child. Remember dental care is free for children
